into smaller components. things that actually could pass the united states senate and also the u.s. house of representatives. one of the reasons why the legislation didn't clear the senate yesterday is how difficult it is to get 60 votes to clear procedural hurdles in the united states senate. even if all democrats had voted for the legislation, you still would have needed another seven republicans. so you're going to see the white house as well as senate democrats and congressional democrats go back to the well to see what can get 60 votes in the senate and also, a majority support, 218 votes in the house. >> and senator reid pulled back voting no so they could talk about it again in the future. >> right. that's a procedural move you see time and time again when the majority ends up losing a vote. that the majority leader would decide to vote against it so they can bring it up again. >> we've got a long way to go with this one. we'll talk about it. great to see you. >>> the news nation also following breaking news right now at the manslaughter trial of michael jackson's doctor. let's tak
